Who is your ISP? Are you using DSL, Cable Modem, or something else? Do you have a static IP or rotating, and if so when is the cycle for rotation? Are you using a router, or is the PC directly connected to the gateway device?

More information needed! My telepathy is out on vacation, because today is headache day... :'-(

Yea, I had that issue with a belkin router, then I totally shut the wireless off and had no more issues. See if turning off the wireless works.

What you need to do is remove the router, TEMPORARILY, and see if the issue clears up. This will tell you if it is your equipment, or the gateway or other issues on the ISP side. If your cable modem has an accessible log, check it and see if it is rebooting for any reason.

As far as network cables, ANY cable that uses good copper, tight ends, and is properly twisted is fine. I use Rosewill's cheap stuff all the time, and have had maybe one out of hundreds turn out bad. Just look for solid copper cables, CAT 5e or CAT 6 (preferable), and molded ends (tougher and keeps moisture out of the cable), and you'll be fine.

There is a limited supply of braided copper (like speaker wire) LAN cables out there, made for flexibility, but this cable type is very unfriendly to high-speed transmission, so expect 100Mb/s to be flaky, and 1Gb/s to be darn near impossible to negotiate. STAY AWAY from aluminum LAN cables... seriously, I don't know why they are still being made.

Yea, that's a CAT6 cable, but try and find a CAT6 cable that's a little cheaper. I use CAT6 cables myself for my wired connections.

Going back to your wireless issues. Call the ISP, do firmware update on router, restart router and model, update wireless cards/adapters.

One of the things I mentioned was molded ends. You can't do that on bare cable assembly, so I want to ask if you have experience in adding RJ45 ends to CAT6 cables? This is important to know, because not being able to properly trim the wire, or maintain the individual wire length during assembly can result in cables that stutter or cause the network to slow down the connection.

For the inexperienced, it's recommended to use pre-fab cables.

Once you remove any routers after the cable company's modem, cables and your networking ports on the computer. Then the problem falls back on the modem and cable company to fix the problem. I've seen where some cable company's might have problems with their external routers in neighborhoods when the weather gets extremely cold. Some times if you notice that the internet has gone out you can check the TV and see if the channels are also out.

If the modem-to-PC connection is failing, this indicates a problem with the modem or the service. Contact your ISP and have them send somebody out to fix it.
